I am an empathetic, patient, results-oriented tutor with 10 years of experience working with all age groups. As a UC Berkeley grad, I have taught in NYC public schools, and have led private tutoring sessions in various subjects. I am always available to answer any questions the student may have post-sessions.
I come from a long line of educators (two grandparents and both my parents!). From them I have learned the importance of building the student up, to always instill confidence in his or her own abilities through guidance and one-on-one practice. This is my philosophy as a tutor and I'm proud to say that it has proven to be successful time and again. I'm looking forward to meeting you and achieving solid results together!

What is your teaching philosophy?
Anyone can improve their understanding of a subject. I believe in helping students cultivate a growth mindset, where everyone can change and grow through practice and application.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
The student will be asked questions to assess their level and needs. Then we will look at a specific problem together, and the student will be asked to "talk me through" their problem-solving process.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I help by boosting their confidence in their own abilities to solve problems, and through practice.
